Handling

Unfortunately, leaving everything the same isn't always a good thing, as it can mean the camera's behavior doesn't keep pace with its evolving feature set.

The EOS-1D X II lets you use Auto ISO in manual exposure mode and allows the use of exposure compensation to set the target brightness. However, the +/- exposure compensation button on the top plate doesn't work in M mode: instead you need to customize a different button to set exposure compensation, or remove your eye from the viewfinder and use the Q menu. This makes little sense when you have a dedicated exposure compensation button.
